After driving around to multiple voting locations trying to find one that actually opened, I voted for Bernie today in Indiana. I’m disappointed with how the primary has gone. I wish it felt more meaningful. But even if we can’t win, I couldn’t let the opportunity go by without voting for him.

I'm still holding out a glimmer of hope that things will take a wild turn and Bernie will end up with the nomination. Crazier things have happened in 2020.

My experience voting for Bernie and his separate delegates in Pennsylvania’s with the debut of the ClearVote system (hand-marked paper ballots/scanner fed-proprietary read). Major tech fail today.

Pennsylvania went to ClearVote™ "tech" (hand-marked paper ballots/scanner fed-proprietary read) since 2016. I traveled back East to visit family and to engage in the State's Primary this afternoon. MAJOR TECH FAIL.

No line. Older poll workers I remembered from the last Primary working again. Face masks required.

I was informed that the printed ballots, as delivered, WERE TOO WIDE TO FIT INTO THE SCANNER which was the reason for them…

being trimmed with scissors(!)

…at the sign-in table before being handed to me. Even so, I was alerted that a large number of these "trimmed" ballots were still being rejected by the scanner.

Several scanners were available. If there were three attempts/rejections on each of the scanners, the paper ballot was then to be taken and slid into the hard plastic/single-sheet opening of the "secured" soft-sided luggage that the County elections board provided, which I had to do.

Each scanner's screen indicated how many had been successfully "accepted". I totaled those in my mind and went back to the sign-in table for some info. Less than 100 individuals had voted by that time.

Up to that point, 42.9% of the hand-marked/trimmed ballots were sent into the luggage. UPSIDE: these will be hand counted.
